About this title


"[A] sharp, spare novel written by a wonderful, observant writer."
Richard and Stella balance each other almost perfectly. Sometimes he drinks too much, gets too loud, or is too quick to anger. Stella also knows how generous he can be, too, but she begins to wonder if their violent fights and passionate reconciliations point to a deeper problem that Richard doesn't even suspect. There is something terribly wrong with the two of them together, even if everyone else thinks they are almost perfect....
From the Paperback edition.
